(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A force of 21.09 N is applied tangentially to a wheel of radius 0.340 m and gives rise to an angular acceleration of 1.20 rad/s ^2. Calculate the rotational inertia of the wheel.

a) 7.46 kg . m2

b) 4.98 kg . m2

c) 8.96 kg . m2

d) 5.97 kg . m2

2. Relevant equations

Do I use some type of inertia equation?

3. The attempt at a solution

My problem is I seem to not know where to start?
